On the air with Ireland’s NewsTalk radio

moncrieffGood morning, Irleand, or in their case, good afternoon.
That’s how Kathy started the day here at YourNovel.com – on air with Sean Moncrieff, who has a daily afternoon show on NewsTalk 106-108 FM in Dublin.
The host was intrigued with the idea of couples starring together in a romance novel, so much so he gave it a test drive, ordering “Infectious Love” by Emily Dommershausen.
While Kathy chatted on air about 15 minutes, covering the wild and mild versions, how customers go about starring in their own novel and a bit about how she and Fletcher draw inspiration for their romance novels from their world travels, the climax (pun intended) was when a professional announcer read from the novel Sean had ordered.
Here’s a teaser: “Sean quickly shed his clothing and climbed into the shower … ‘You know I’ll always do whatever I can to help you relax…’ ”
Books come in hardback, paperback and some of the 50 offerings can be ordered as ebooks. There’s the option of adding a photo of the starring couple to the book’s cover. Novels make great birthday, wedding and anniversary gifts, are fun as anytime to say “I Love You” and are extremely popular come Valentine’s Day.

Six days left to win a novel from Steph’s Cheers and Jeeers

Blogger Stephy Sumner of Steph’s Cheers and Jeers writes: I love to read so when I had the opportunity to team up with YourNovel.com I was so excited!

YourNovel.com is a website that allows you to create custom novels! It gives you the chance to star in your very own romance book which as someone who love romance books that super exciting to me. They have some great novels to choose from, some take place in tropical places or depict historical events. They also have a few SciFi, Vampire and Zombie themed books to choose from as well. You can choose to receive your book as either a Ebook, paperback, or hardcover. You can also decide if you want to receive a wild version or mild version. The wild is definitely steamy and I suggest it!

I decided to go with a novel called A Ren Faire to Remember.

12523910_1655238088061416_7875608046411075712_n-2This book stars a couple who is on a trip to visit one of the largest Renaissance Faire in the world which is in London, along the way while dressed in period clothing they encounter  knights, maidens, kings, queens, jesters, wizards, princesses, falconers, minstrels and more. Jousting tournaments, musical performances, and food booths provide continuous entertainment, and in the extravaganza, the hero and heroine meet a mysterious stranger who is desperate for help. Taking them into his confidence, he transports them to a medieval, mythical land where brave knights serve a legendary king. To help their new-found friend and to get back home themselves, they must complete a fantastic quest, traveling through dark forests, into dank caves, up lofty green hills, and finally to an ancient plain where pillars of stone hold mystical powers and provide a battle ground to resolve their predicament.

Review: As someone who LOVES this period of time I instantly fell in love with the novel, I was sent. Of course, I customized it to feature my husband and I. I don’t want to say too much so I don’t ruin the surprise but this book is jam packed with excitement! I actually blushed a few times too! If you love this period of time I highly suggest this book!

Do you want to win a $50 gift card to customize your own book? Find details on how to enter here, but hurry as there are only six days left: http://stephscheersandjeers.com/spice-up-your-life-with-a-yournovel-com-review-and-giveaway/.

Missi Rose giving away a personalized romance novel

Missi Rose smaller header

There’s still time to enter the free giveaway at Missi Rose’s Views. This blogger is giving one lucky reader a novel from YourNovel.com, but you must enter by the end of February.

She writes: Looking for a unique gift idea for Valentine’s Day, an Anniversary, or other special occasion?

I recently discovered something that is not only unique but also fun and so different from the traditional gift ideas.YourNovel.com’s personalized romance novels are one-of-a-kind gifts that offer a distinct option for those seeking something different than the norm like chocolate (which contributes to our weight gain), lingerie (which looks great but eventually gets tossed in a drawer), jewelry (which can cost more than the normal budget allows) and even flowers (beautiful, but once they wilt and die, the attraction is gone.)

In short, these novels are fun, sexy and romantic and offer a unique experience for the reader.In fact, there are over 50 settings for the stories and the books are available in paperback, hardback and ebooks as well. Better yet, each one has a “wild” or “mild” version so you can choose just how “spicy” you want the romantic interludes to be and a photo of the starring couple can be printed on the cover! Awesome!

I don’t have a significant other right now but did create my own novel using aliases and I have to say it’s pretty cool to read a story and see my chosen names as the characters. If you’d like to be the star of your own romance novel or give an amazing gift to someone special, we are offering our readers a 10% discount on their next purchase from YourNovel.com using this Promo Code: MISSI10 (expires 2/29/16).

Thanks to YourNovel, we are offering one AWESOME reader a $50 Gift Certificate towards their own personalized romance novel….Good Luck!

Find the entry form and all the details here: http://www.missirosesviews.com/2016/02/star-in-your-own-personalized-romance.html

My Little House of Treasures blogger giving away novel

So we had one of these giveaways at Christmas and I really enjoyed the book I gave to my son and his wife. They enjoyed it very much as well, so when I was asked if I would like to do another one, I said yes because I have 3 sons so this book for Valentine’s day will go to my oldest son and his girlfriend.

These books are from www.yournovel.com,  (You can enter to win at http://mylittlehouseoftreasures.blogspot.ca/ – the deadline is Feb. 20.)

The book I ordered is set in Tahiti, and it is called “Island of Love”. Its a paperback book and has 191 pages.

Win a free plain paperback personalized romance novel like "Island of Love" which is set in Tahiti.

Win a free  personalized romance novel like “Island of Love” which is set in Tahiti.

It is a personalized novel, a tale of exotic romance and spine-tingling adventure set in Tahiti and the South Seas. Black pearls, black-sand beaches and the black hearts of villains intent on pillaging paradise all play a role.

From a luxury cruise ship, the starring couple embark on the vacation of a lifetime where swimming with dolphins on Moorea, showering under a waterfall near Papeete, and snorkeling along a secluded beach in Huahine are moments to savor. During the journey, they find their destiny rests in myth as deep as the blue Polynesian waters. Tahiti, the Island of Love, is the perfect setting for a love story where the action is of volcanic proportion. These books are personalized romance novels (you star in the books with your Hunny) are one-of-a-kind gifts that offer a distinct option that is much different from traditional gifts like roses (which wilt and die), chocolates (which contributes to weight gain), lingerie (which looks great once but gets tossed aside) or jewelry (which can cost more than a normal budget allows). In short they are fun, campy, sexy and romantic, and offer a unique experience: reading about yourself doing some pretty wild and crazy things in exotic settings.

These books are in 50-plus settings (with the newest release set in New York City). The books, which come as paperback, hardbacks, and ebooks, and the fun part – each one has a “wild” or “mild” version so you can choose how “spicy” you want the romantic interludes. I ordered the “mild” version for my one son and again for my oldest son. Seeing I read these books first, I didn’t want to pry into their bedroom so to speak. lol

They created the genre of personalized novels in 1992, and Valentine’s has been their busiest season of the year. They have been called “Computerized Cupids,” and the books tagged the “Ultimate Vanity Valentine.” They think both are appropriate. I have to agree.

You can choose from any of these Valentine books:http://yournovel.com/catalog/index/ValentinesFavorites I know you will find one here that you are going to love. So enter for your chance to win and decide who you want to give this book to. Maybe your significant other, a son and his wife, a daughter and her husband, you make the choice. The winner will get an email from the sponsor with a instructions for ordering your book along with the $50 Gift Card code.

Now I am going to go back and finish reading this book so I can mail it off to my son. He knows there is a surprise coming but has no clue what it is.

So enter today and good luck to everyone. I know you will love your book. for details, visit http://mylittlehouseoftreasures.blogspot.ca/

Shipping Valentine’s 2016

Normally printed books arrive in one week from the day you order; ebooks are delivered within 24 hours.

If you are looking for guaranteed delivery dates, you will have to choose the EXPRESS (USPS Express Mail) shipping method. STANDARD shipping (USPS Priority Mail) is not and has never been guaranteed for delivery.

But please keep in mind that even with EXPRESS shipping, each book has to be handmade first, which means you cannot order today and expect shipment nor delivery tomorrow.

Our long-standing policy remains in effect: no refunds will be issued due to weather issues. If planes can’t fly and trucks can’t roll, no mail will get delivered.

Weather and disasters are always beyond our power, and we hope all of us have none to be concerned with. However, we cannot be held accountable for delivery problems caused by circumstances beyond our control.

Updated 2/12/16 1:46 pm EST Only ebooks can be delivered by Valentine’s Day. Ebooks will be delivered to the email address of the who ordered it, and then the ebook can be read online, printed out, or emailed to the email address of who you are giving the ebook to at any time – like as a surprise on Valentine’s Day. It’s also great to include a little personal message of your own in the email when you sent the ebook along.

Prior posts will fill you in on the timeframe of orders and shipping.

(Updated 2/11/16 5 pm EST) We received another two large shipping lists and the books that were in it that used US Express look good for delivery by Saturday the 13th.

Priority shipping may get there.

Ebooks are made and emailed within hours, right thru Valentine’s Day.

(Updated 2/10/16 9:51 am EST) Two huge shipments went out yesterday and those books look great for delivery Thursday thru Saturday.

The orders that came in yesterday and going forward have a chance of delivery by Saturday the 13th, but right now it’s best to be thinking ebooks or getting a book early next week.

If your book has been delayed, here is a link to a card you can use to announce it’s on its way. You can email it or print it out.

This sentence comes from your production email, but in case you did not see it, here it is again: If your book has been delayed, here is a link to a card you can use to announce it’s on its way. You can email it or print it out.

(Updated 2/5/16 8:15 pm EST.) Can you still get a printed book delivered by Valentine’s Day? YES, in the United States only.

John Boy and Billy, The Big Show: Hello? Hello, are you there?

bigshow_mA funny thing happened on my way to The Big Show interview with John Boy and Billy. They apparently hung up on me. I love these guys and know it was nothing personal. Appraently, things happen in the control booth that neither you nor I as mere mortal, non-radio personalities could ever hope to comprehend. I think it’s a button king of thing, myself, but then there I go, gettin’ above my raisin’.

Anyhoo, The Boys, as I lovinglly call them, figured out all that hi-falitin’, tech stuff and I was – voila – on the air. The resulting interview will have you cacklin’ – that’s code for laughin’ if ya’ll ain’t from ’round here.

OK, full disclosure, my non-accented voice (if you ask me) suddenly takes on this unexplained drawl when they answer the phone.

More importantly, listen in and have a Big Ole Laugh on The Big Show with the Stars, John Boy and Billy, and yours truly. Ta-Dah!

Cold friends to the north promoting novels for Valentine’s

It was 14 degrees in Grand Falls up there in Canada, eh, when Kathy was on air Friday with Capt. Kirk Davidson at K93. We love our friends to the Cold North who tell their listeners about YourNovel.com’s great Valentine’s service: Put your honey and yourself in a romance novel.

k93_morningsSo back to 14 degrees. Is it any wonder Kirk fell off his chair laughing when Kathy mentioned we were shivering here in North Carolina at 35 degrees? Hey, we have ice to prove it.

Kirk also taught Kathy a fun new phrase – wiggle pop. “Oooh,” she said, “sounds like something I need to put in a romance novel: ‘She turned to Fletcher and said, come here, wiggle pop.’ ”

Uh, not quite. It’s a euphemism for an alcoholic drink, which they need what with ice fishing in frigid temps. Who knew?

Thanks also to sister station CJ104 in Woodstock, New Brunswick, where Terry and Jenn also interviewed Kathy. That will be coming up on air Monday morning. You can listen online at http://player.cj104.com/.

Thanks, ya’ll.

Canada’s CJ104 FM features YourNovel.com

terry mannOur friends to the chilly north, Terry & Jenn, had Kathy on air this morning at CJ104 in Woodstock, NB, Canada (where it was 19 degrees).

They were delighted to hear the news that the new title this year is set in New York City (pre-order yours now in time for Valentine’s gift giving.)

Terry said what a huge hit his romance novel was last year that he presented to his fiance/ And yes, he went for, in his words, “the naughty version.” It was so gratifying to hear that their listeners go nuts for the novels each year on air when we give two away.

Stay warm up there, friends. Cuddle with your sweetie and read the sexy parts together.

Author tells how latest novel came about

Unique Valentine’s gift:  NC writer pens customizable novel featuring New York and Marilyn Monroe

RALEIGH, NC (January 19, 2016) — “My husband and I met over a floppy disk, and fell in love over a Star Trek quote,” confides Apex, NC, writer Madhavi Krevat who describes herself as both a hopeless romantic and a skeptical realist. After YourNovel.com published her book “A Ren Faire to Remember ” in 2014, she added the moniker “Author.”

Known as “Madi” to some, Madhavi Krevat has penned “New York: Some Like It Hot ” as the newest release from YourNovel.com, which created the genre of personalized romance novels 24 years ago. Set in New York City, any starring couple can undertake this adventure between the pages of this new book.

“I’m a big science fiction/fantasy geek,” says Krevat. “So, I like to put a little geekiness into each book I write. I think it spices up the romance even more. There’s a little science fiction in this one, in the form of time travel.

Madhavi Krevat with her first novel for YourNovel.com alongside husband Matthew. Also shown are Debbie and Mike West who  appeared in a Today Show feature about starring together in a book. Debbie encouraged Madi to submit her writing to the company.

Madhavi Krevat with her first novel for YourNovel.com alongside husband Matthew. Also shown are Debbie and Mike West who appeared in a Today Show feature about starring together in a book. Debbie encouraged Madi to submit her writing to the company.

Krevat credits her husband, Matthew, as her inspiration, always pushing her to write. “He’s the only one who truly understands exactly what my writing means to me; he knows it’s my passion. He’s my biggest fan and my most ardent supporter.” She adds, “The other person I really need to thank is Debbie West. A YourNovel.com enthusiast, Debbie kept trying to get me to submit something: And now I’ve written two novels.” When Krevat’s first novel rolled off the presses in 2013, West got one of the first copies. “And she’ll probably be the first one to buy this new one, too,” Krevat laughs.

At the beginning of 2015, company co-founders and husband-wife team J.S. Fletcher and Kathy Newbern approached Krevat to ask her to write a story proposal and an outline because of her success with her first novel.

Krevat immediately jumped on it. “That’s where this book was born. It’s changed a little since its initial conception, but it’s been a fun ride.”

Says YourNovel.com’s J.S. Fletcher: “Kathy and I believe in helping people achieve their dreams, and we are delighted that Madi has chosen to pursue hers with us in this way.”

The author is living a true love story thanks to her 23-year marriage and three children. “Matthew is my true love, my best friend and my inspiration. He brings out the best in me; he always has. Without him and my three children — Jacob, Joseph and Leah — my life would be sadly incomplete. They are my biggest fans, and I am theirs.”

Krevat is still in awe of the fact that she is a published author. “I have always wanted to be published. I’ve been writing poems and stories for years; I’ve never stopped. I write every second I can.

Read an excerpt from “New York: Some Like it Hot,” here.

For Valentine’s gift giving, order Krevat’s book or any title from YourNovel.com no later than Feb. 7 (and earlier is better) at www.YourNovel.com.

Shipping info on Christmas 2015

December 25, 2015. All the orders have been mailed.

Have a great 2016.

If you still have a reader on your gift list and want to order a printed book from YourNovel.com, you’ll need to get your orders for paperback books in by Sunday, December 19. We will be monitoring production and will do all that we can to get all books to you by December 24th.

We will, however, be cutting off hardback books orders as of December 17th.

Of course, ebooks can be made until December 24th.

If you need a printed book before Christmas (or you are the type who worries about things), it would be best to choose the US Express service for guaranteed delivery.

Our standing policy remains in effect: no refunds will be issued due to weather issues. You can read more about that policy in our prior posts.
